An all encompassing facility placing an emphasis on safety and protection for rescued refugee children. Large open spaces are critical to the success of the children’s recovery, creating a healthy therapeutic environment. The flexibility of the building allows each child to experience the transitional functionality of living and cohabitating at the center. As the children progress through the rehabilitation process, a greater emphasis is placed on integration and community, allowing them another chance at a healthy, successful life.
